Me to the driver: Sorry to trouble you that you have to stay up so late to take me to the airport (my flight leaves 330am).
Oomen: ‘That’s my pleasure, no…’ (said with the classic Indian head shake, and coupled with BIG smile on his face!)
How the simple things in life can bring you simple (but very tangible) joys!
So blessed by the authentic ways of this man.
After I took this picture, he said to me… ‘When you remember me, pray for me and my two kids +1 and +2’ (he meant his 1 and 2 years old who are in Kerala).
‘Everyday I talk to them on the phone, and every few months I get to go and visit with them.’
